About this fund

The London based PF Charitable Trust has worked with Foundation Scotland to distribute funds in Scotland since 1997, distributing over £900,000 in its name during this time. The PF Charitable Trust's funding policy is to support work at community level and the Foundation provides a valuable service in targeting appropriate groups. 

Purpose of this fund

Projects must meet one of the following priorities: 

  • Disability 

  • Health 

  • Children and Families 

  • Youth work 

  • Elderly 

Additional criteria

This fund can only consider smaller projects with an overall maximum total project cost of £8,000.  For example, if you are applying for a £2,000 grant towards your premises' rent, which over the year comes to a total of £12,000, we cannot consider an application towards this cost.
